Coaching in Modern EDUcation, the benefits

Framing in EDUcation.

Learners, students learn BETTER when their brain is free, without any framing, thus meaning: include them into the learning process by guiding them through the <===> LEARNing Process <===> instead of teaching ONLY linear lessons WHERE YOU are the BOSS, give up control and look for a Win-Win situation WHERE students, learners have a voice; WHERE THEY can take THEIR OWN responsibility of THEIR LEARNing. Coach THEM (the students, learners) THE How-To of <===> #LEARNing2LEARN <===> because THAT IS <===> #ModernEDU <===> which they need to be prepared for <===> #LifeLongLEARNing <===> by using Social Media, especially Twitter to build THEIR <===> #PLN Personal [Professional] LEARNing Network <===> through Curation combined with Social Media. And through THAT LEARNing-Path THEY will be able to create THEIR OWN #PKM <===> Personal [Professional] Knoledge Management.

students-workforceAND there are also the “Apps“, BUT don’t forget that THEY are ONLY facilitators, they are NOT the change in 21st Century EDUcation; THE change is applying the pedagogy and the 21st Century techniques together. In 21st Century EDUcation it is NOT anymore about the teaching, BUT about the LEARNing and the ===> LEARNing-To-LEARN <=== to give OUR LEARNers,students the necessary knowledge and skills for a ===> Life-Long-LEARNing <=== Once out of school THEY will need constantly to learn to adapt to a very quick changing world!

I suggest to make ===> Coaching <=== with YOUR LEARNers, students where YOU walk through the rows in the classroom by observing THEM and to interact with them ONLY when they need it, learn together with them and create a ===> win-win situation <===, NO hierarchy, BUT a trustful partnership with them. I have done this since 2002 and it works perfect, best results! Find out more below:

In the above mentioned links YOU will see how WE learned together in OUR ===> Global Collaboration Blog <=== by ===> Coaching <=== through using the “DM” (Direct Messages) from Twitter, YES WE used Twitter, it works perfect😉 The same as WE used OUR blogs to communicate and to show OUR LEARNing to others, so that THEY could learn also from us.

The difference between coaching and mentoring

Coaching-mentoring

Click the above image please to access the article.

Please read the following article below who explains in detail:

[START text from “What Makes Coaching and Mentoring Different?“]

Mentoring

Mentoring is much more hands on and interpersonal.  As a leader or supervisor you are working hands on with a team member to facilitate the learning process.  Mentoring is sharing experiences, skills, and knowledge. It often takes place with an individual who is learning something that they have no previous knowledge about and it is something that they will need to master or at least be proficient in. Or it maybe learning how to navigate through an organization or explore new career paths.

Coaching

On the other hand, coaching generally does not focus on hard skill such as accounting, project management, or programming to name a few.  Coaching is a process that helps one to explore what may be holding them back from their true potential and often is focused more on behaviors than skills.

Think of a baseball coach, someone who is with the team and letting them do the work, however he/she will review the team and try to better their abilities across the field.  However imagine the same coach working with his pitcher and trying to teach him how to properly throw a curve ball.  The first scenario is simply coaching the team to raise productivity, and the second is mentoring an individual who is trying to learn a new skill or ability that he/she might not be able to properly learn on his or her own.

LEARNing Path For Professional 21st Century LEARNing By ICT PracTICE Concept

LEARNing2LEARN-2.

.

Over the years I developed and designed a possibility on the How-To use ICT for LEARNing and TEACHing which will prepare the LEARNers, students to fulfill the needs of the working market. It is mostly build up by coaching and NOT TEACHing as a <===> Win-Win situation is in mind and ALSO Collaboration <===> which are key factors in a modern society.

.

.

.

Let us first have a look on the How-To design a course which gives the learners, students some engagement as THEY could reproduce it themselves after YOU showed them the How-To and will bring in some creativity as well 😉

 

What's this coaching thing about

.

WE will use THAT system as shown on left-hand side shown image, isn’t it 😉 WE will give OUR learners, students autonomy and coaching them to become <===> Life-Long LEARNers <===> by <===> LEARNing To LEARN <===> through collaboration, by using blogging, curation, Social Media and by putting them into the drivers seat. THEY will learn to take responsibility to survive in a bi-directional world (Real World and Virtual World are interacting…) and WE will coaching THEM as well to be responsible <===> Digital CitiZEN <===> by LEARNing about the basics of <===> Cyber Security <===> as well and ALSO about <===> eSkills <===> as it is THEIR world with ALL the problems present which THEY have to fight for and in it!

Sounds like a lot, isn’t it!? It’s actually NOT that difficult when well organized and designed, please check below (it takes some time…):

Here is a road map for visual understanding 😉

My Personal View AND PracTICE

.

.

Learning from others

Please check @yeates_mark on twitter. Click the image to access account!

MY experience described in ONLY some phrases: Give the LEARNers, students (whatever age) the freedom of LEARNing without squeezing THEM into a FRAME and concentrate on guiding them as a coach by analyzing THEIR behavior and show them the How-To to become self-directed learners, autodidacts. SHOW THEM ALSO up from the beginning WHAT THE <===> LEARNing Path <===> will be with design of it and explain THEM that they could design themselves it with a short introduction on the How-To.

.

THEY will learn the ICT-PracTICE which will help them once out of the <===> #SchoolCocoon <===> to be ready for Life-Long LEARNing and to be able to adapt very quickly in the workforce! WHEN YOU show the LEARNers, students <===> WHAT the profit is for THEIR private life <===> YOU will engage them very quickly 😉 AND DON’T teach THEM more as necessary, propose them some links to go further ONLY for those who want!!

WHAT’S my message and WHY did I create this blog post!?

Well, I will encourage all youth and also adults, seniors, oldies to become <===>Life-Long LEARNers <===> and staying Up-To-Date with their knowledge, especially concerning their skills in ICT, called NOW <===> #eSkills <===>! In the modern world YOU will change YOUR job probably +/- 12 times in YOUR working career, it is very rare to stay life-long in the same job and/or same company!!! SO… The workforce is looking for people with ICT skills which YOU mostly didn’t learn at school, right!? 

YOU won’t have (mostly) the time to learn by visiting courses, right!? START to become Life-Long LEARNers by LEARNing on YOUR OWN pace, by becoming <===> Autodidacts <===> Self-Directed LEARNers. YOU are able to, I did it, so can YOU!? 😉

I found a job because of my ICT eSkills and I am STILL LEARNing on a daily base routine for being Up-To Date with my <===> Professional Development <===>, even being retired NOW! THE pleasure of LEARNing!

I did THE <===> ICT PracTICE <===> and THAT’S WHAT the workforce needs!!!


 Due to my eSkills I could share my knowledge AND expertise ALSO with the below mentioned as well as to a broad range of visitors from around the globe!

EINSTEIN quotes-problems

.

With the internet WE have NOW two different worlds which interact to each other, the “Virtual World” and the “Real World”! There are NO walls anymore in the <===> #SchoolCocoon <===> as students, learners have access to OUTSIDE the schools through an internet connection. ALSO does the working force use the internet for commercial purpose, so the learners, students MUST know about how to use this in a responsible manner as wanting to GET a job… There will be a strict selection from work force on HOW NEW employees are aware of THAT!

Because of there is a LOT of , in AND ! Isn’t it!??? A NEW way of expression on a view!

 

As long as YOU are STILL THINKing (???) in a fixed frame as taught by OLD EDUcation, HOW will YOU LEARN the NEW!? How will YOU follow THAT quick CHANGE!? YOU CAN’T with linear learning!!! YOU would need 10 years to follow up, BUT THEN there will be ALREADY NEW things to learn again, and so on… Instead use the <===> Synthesizing Mind <===>, see PIC below, please.

Framing in EDUcation

Check the above image and GO for #DeepTHINKING! Is THAT making YOU feel funny!???

THE OLD way of teaching is OUT!!!

 

Today is about coaching the students, learners toward for <===> LEARNing To LEARN <===> to become <===> Life-Long LEARNers as the world is turning much more quicker as WE can follow! SO… EDUcation can’t follow for sure and OUR students, learners need to know to learn to become independent and learn on THEIR OWN; they need to become autodidacts, self-directed learners!!!

How Did This Blog Start?-The TEAM Explains

.

GUST-AVRIL2014-800px-2[GM]Well, an online friend on Social Media Twitter ===>  <=== and ALSO a member of my ===> PLN <=== was introducing Mindy [MK] to his ===> PLN <=== (where I belong to as well) as a NEW Twitter user and asking us ALL to give Mindy a bit help as a newcomer. I did through sharing of my blog posts and curation about Twitter and the contact to Mindy became later stronger and she was willing to learn, she was asking to learn more. A very good initiative which I couldn’t refuse as I love sharing my knowledge with others. So one moment come I was explaining most of what she wanted to know over “DM” (Direct [private] Messages) on Twitter, which was working perfectly… At that moment she wanted ALSO to know more about blogging and I gave her a little help through creating a special blog about the first steps with WordPress here ===> Creating Your First Blog Post With WordPress <===. That was the beginning, I will let Mindy [MK] explain more and especially her point of view below…


.

Mindy KIM-122x142[MK]: I came fresh from a training, where I was the only individual from a public school system, the rest were from private/independent schools. The training was about leadership, best teaching practices, pedagogy, and technology. It was nearing the end of day two, when a guest speaker presented about technology. He had a twitter, a blog, a YouTube channel, and many other tools he utilized to reach his students as well as tools for his own professional development. Unfortunately, until then I had not given much thought into using technology as a way to further my professional development. I furiously took notes and made a “to-do” list of mini-goals I wanted to put into action when the conference was over. Later that weekend I created a twitter account. Unsure of what to expect and how it would transform my professional knowledge. Within minutes I had added the few people I knew, then my phone started buzzing with sounds of others following me thanks to  ===> the only person I really knew.  Others followed me from that first interaction. I was grateful and intrigued. The next hurdle was to create a blog. Where to start? What type of blog? Who will want to read my blog?.. and many other questions ensued. That is where [GM] came in. I had found a source where I could “unload” all the unrelenting questions that I thought about, wondered, and sought advice on. At times meekly asking questions, which transformed into deep conversations sharing thoughts and ideas.

My blogs:


Dan KIRSCH[DK] An online friend ===> @knolinfos Gust MEES and I have been collaborating on several different blog topics; such as our Learn-to-learn: Digital Citizenship blog and our Global Collaboration blog; including @eduinspirations Mindy. K. I was asked if I would want to be a part of this collaboration; in which I jump at the chance!!! The professional development and collaboration I have gained through twitter and blogging with Gust MEES, Mindy K., and Mark W. have given me the inspiration to continue my practice to become the best possible educator and life-long learner that I can be!!! Through participating in twitter chats; such as the #whatisschool chat I have gained a global connection with other educators that I never thought possible. It was suggest to me to start a WordPress blog where I could continue my connections with other educators through collaboration!! I have always used edublogs as my “main” website for my students to collaborate with one another. I never thought about starting or creating my own “personal” blog to continue my own learning until I was invite by Gust MEES to collaborate in a global collaboration blog. Through many direct messages through twitter I have become part of great PLN!!! I look forward to the different avenues this blog topic will take me as I continue my growth as professional educator and life-long learner!! Currently, I have the privilege of being a member of my school districts ICT Curriculum Committee. We are rewriting & updating our ICT classes for students 6-8.

WHY Coaching!?

sharing-iconCoaching  is NOT YET accepted that as it SHOULD be in EDUcation, BUT it is a MUST for 21st Century EDUcation as:

        • [GM] It is a Win-Win situation between Teachers and Students (Learners)
        • [GM] It is an essential  win of time, learners learn much quicker
        • [GM] There will be an atmosphere of TRUST between teachers and learners
    • [GM] Due to this TRUST, learners feel more FREE to ask questions
    • [GM] The learners learn to work in a TEAM
    • [GM] It is more exiting to learn on this way
    • [GM] The learners get motivated to learn on THEIR own pace
    • [GM] The learners are “learning to learn
    • [GM] The learners have a voice
    • [GM] The learners could be teacher and learner
    • [GM] Coaching is observing the learners: one finds out WHAT is needed from them and can adapt to ANY situation then.
    • [MK] & [DK]: add more, please, thanks
    • [MK] True collaboration takes place, give/take of information
    • [MK] Build global connections
    • [MK] Build understanding of CULTURES and COMMUNITIES

Awareness While Working With 21st Century Pedagogy, Tools And Social Media

programmerman2[GM] In the above mentioned sections WE discussed the possibilities of a modern pedagogy and ALSO WE presented some solutions which of course could get extended by other solutions… BUT, isn’t there something different from traditional learning? YES, WE are using NOW the internet and learning doesn’t happen anymore ONLY in school, in the ===> SchoolCocoon <===! There are NO walls anymore as the internet breaks any borders and walls, the internet is present anywhere as far as there is a possible connection. WE are living NOW in  ===> another world <===, a world with two faces, the virtual world and the real world, where the internet (the virtual world) and the real world are influencing each other.

[GM] It isn’t enough anymore to ONLY know the pedagogy and the used 21st Century tools, also known on Twitter as “EdTech Tools“! While using the internet and services, as also tools (programs and Apps), which are connected to the internet, WE MUST accept WHAT is happening in this “virtual world“! This “Digital World” or “Virtual World” is exactly the same as in the “Real World“, there are BAD and GOOD! Actually there are a lot of dangers in the “Virtual World” where a lot of people are NOT aware about it, and there is the responsibility of Education to jump in and teach the learners about WHAT THEY have to be aware and ALSO how to protect as its BEST against: (TIP: read ONLY the text in BOLD to understand)

Collaboration-Working As A Team (Especially On Global) And Connected Through Social Media

community-jpegThe authors [GM], [MK], [DK] will comment here THEIR experiences through the adventure of global collaboration which THEY experienced.

[GM] My advice (as I am used to it since ages ===> (2002-2003) <===:

Before starting such a BIG project, YES it is a BIG one as YOU are dealing with different mentalities and cultures, is to set up rules up from the beginning to avoid BIG mistakes and not necessary stress for ALL.

This is called ===> Proactive THINKing <=== BETTER to use it as as YOU could come into situations without an issue when NOT doing it and WHO wants that!?

Concerning ===> Proactive THINKing <===: most people don’t know about WHAT it is, I will explain very shortly: deep thinking on what could happen in case of to avoid it up from the beginning. YOU could ALSO say: thinking of the “Worst case” who could happen and preparing to that it would NOT happen. OR, if YOU are smart, using Psychology for that it will happen (ONLY positive things…)! TIP: read ONLY the bold text to understand it quickly 😉

Check ALSO these links, please, who explain about “International Collaboration”:

VERY IMPORTANT message for the TEAM.

Message for Mindy, Dan ===> Preparation

Some advice and rules:

Hi Mindy, Dan: I gave You the status “Editor” for this blog post. Please use ONLY this blog post for OUR “Collaboration and Coaching”!!! ====> EDUcation-Collaboration And Coaching | The Future – Private <=== Don’t touch anything else as when YOU are even seeing other things (my blog posts and…). ONLY THIS blog post, thanks! 

Here are YOUR possibilities:

I will give You some directions through messages marked in “brown“, as this text. WE will communicate this way. You do the same, please: using “brown” text for messages and questions…

If YOU think that something SHOULD get brought in MORE in this “brown” text, feel FREE to do so! BUT, then please use YOUR initials, such as [MK], [DK], thanks.

Once You have read the text, I suggest that You create an “unpublished” (Private mode) post on YOUR account where You copy the “brown” text into and save it for following and reminding 😉 Once done, please let me know and I will delete the “brown” text and save at new this post. So WE will have a good communication and the text will look later OK (when published “Public”) for the readers.

ALSO, so You will have saved a copy of ALL OUR interactions, which could be useful for You and YOUR LEARNers, maybe thinking of as using later that preparation for a new blog post of YOUR OWN on the #HowTo which WE could integrate also in this blog post (ONLY one link…) as part of YOUR OWN experience... It is IMPORTANT to know “THE way” on How To YOU did it for YOUR further “adventures” with OTHERS on collaboration…

 Some links who might be helpful for You:

At the bottom of this blog post You will see the keywords which WE were talking about: these will help us to NOT lose the line what WE want to do 😉 Feel FREE to add some new when they come out from YOUR brain…

Try first, please, to bring in YOUR insights in the mentioned ===> [MK], [DK], in “brown” text. Later You certainly will have something to suggest, which would be welcome of course. BUT, focus, please first on the mentioned 😉 Otherwise You could lose the topic(s) ===> advice <=== 😉

A good idea might be ALSO to post sometimes Tweets about the #HowTo YOUR learning is advancing (as well as in this post), so OTHERS will get little snippets, step by step, what is happening through a such way WE are doing 😉

The ===> Learning By Doing <=== is something which I have taught since 2002 already and especially with “Collaboration”, the WE is a win-win situation and the “Coaching” (NOT anymore Teaching) is a WINNER!

So, as I am the “ADMINISTRATOR”, I will be able to interact in this blog post and I will adjust some text, ideas and…

===> Please DON’T delete the “brown” text as I will do that when I think that it is necessary as “ADMINISTRATOR”, thanks! <===

One more IMPORTANT thing ===> authors SHOULD wait while seeing “locked” as it means that someone else is in “EDIT” mode ;), see screenshot below, please, thanks 😉

.

Multi-Authors

.

Author on EDIT mode

.

WE are multi-authors on this blog post, so WE MUST take care of each other and being respectful. WHEN YOU see a message similar as above, please DON’T click on “Take over” as that author is actually on “EDIT” mode and doing his work, thanks! Be patient, please… OR, as I did with Mindy: I gave her a friendly “DM” (Direct Message [Private Message]) over Twitter to let her know that I MUST quickly made an additional ADD, which after finishing I will let her know when finished and THEN I go out of “EDITING”, so that she can continue with her “EDITING” again. Thanks for respecting this… And thanks to Mindy to give his “Administrator” the time to do this, appreciated.

===> WE are using the “DM” on Twitter <=== for OUR communication, learn more below:

.

1ibdy1vf6wghd-n05dgl-attenzionearchitettofr01Very IMPORTANT: DON’T use any code, HTML and similar in the blog!!! If YOU want so, please contact me and WE will discuss about the possibility, anyway I would check the code before!

.

.

===> WE are neither talking about religion and politics, please, as they differ from each ones beliefs, WE respect THEM, BUT WE avoid talking about it to. <===

TIP: WHEN YOU see that someone else is in “EDIT” mode, so prepare YOUR text in a Word document (or similar) during the time that the author is editing. YOU will later ONLY need to make a copy&paste & formatting in “Justify” and YOU will lose NO time 😉

Let’s GO for it 😉

PS: WE will post in “Justify” as You might have found out 😉 I am used to that, so please follow, thanks. ALL my posts are on “Justify”, so WE have to continue like that, thanks.

Just write and format on “Justify” please, I will have a look later on #HowTo get it BETTER presented, don’t worry. Let it GO, let it FLOW… I will look on the rest, give me some TRUST, please, thanks.

======> DON’T worry about how the blog post is looking actually, I will CHANGE later. Some TOPICS need to get placed differently, coming later… First “Let it GO, let it FLOW and later the fine-tuning…

Slowly, but surely WE will go through it 😉 Rome wasn’t build in one day!

Visible Learning

programmerman2The author [MK] was communicating with me [GM] over “DM” (Direct Messages) over Social MediaTwitter“, a bit like a “Chat” where WE exchanged OUR different point of views (mostly common) about collaboration and coaching. [MK] is authorized to use this “private exchange” to create a new blog on her own, where she will add ALSO her notes to document her learning and her insights

.

  • [MK] My blog:  http://kimmindy7.wordpress.com 
  • [MK] Establishing roles, responsibilities, and a common language are key. A common language allows everyone to have the same foundation in which to build upon.
  • [MK] Communicate, Communicate, Communicate ===> TRUE open communication is key. Especially when various levels of experience are at play.
    • [GM] Remember every time the letter “C” in “ICT“, which means “Communication“.
  • [MK] Immediate and constant feedback are essential.  Feedback helps maintain focus along with eliminating any ambiguity within the group.
  • [MK] Consider the overall purpose. Is it to educate myself, individuals, other professionals? Let that be your guide to reach the targeted audience. Uncommon language or terms is confusing and will turn your audience OFF.
  • [GM] Mindy, please report ALSO about taking a break sometimes, very important 😉 Thank You.

The participants (The TEAM)

community-jpeg.

Actually on July, 10th 2014 WE are three persons working together to learn from each other through Social Media Twitter, which WE will document here to give YOU, dear readers and LEARNers, the opportunity to learn ALSO from us.

To make sure that YOU will know WHO wrote WHAT, WE will use the following:

[GM]: Gust MEES (me, the ADMINISTRATOR of this blog post)

More about me: I am a retired “ICT Instructor” since January 1st, 2014. I gave courses to adults, seniors, teachers, elementary classes, as ALSO sometimes personal coaching to youth from the secondary Education. I will try to create a new blog post about my experiences over the years, who could help YOU as well.  BUT I am very active on Social Media and I give FREE courses online (a constructive pastime) about EDUcation and Cyber-Security. I was a pioneer in my own country as I started already in 2002 together with my LEARNers what WE are doing here now together.

I am an ===> autodidact <===! And ALSO a ===> LifeLongLEARNing person <=== and this since more than 45 years already, always loved to learn 😉

ALSO I was an awarded author on “Google Knol” during four (4) years, service who is NOW (since May 1st, 2012) discontinued and on the “Google Grave Yard“. I had about 1.4 Million page views 😦 and was author of the week in 2009.

.

Gust MEES-Knol-Author-Of-The-Week-2009

.

I was working together with +/- twelve (12) different authors from around the globe, which WE NEVER met before and creating blog posts together. It was a great experience which I loved. Thus meaning, I have a lot of experience through the years which WE will use together in this blog post.  More info about me on the bottom of this blog post.

 Some of my collaborative blogs:

I am online since 1998 and I read a lot of books and mostly magazines. I am multilingual, speaking six languages and understanding eight. I am living in Luxembourg (Europe), a small country with ONLY 537k inhabitants and a population of  44.5 % of foreign nationality (2013). Thus meaning: I am used to live together with different cultures and mentalities, which is a great help when connecting on Social Media with other cultures.

More about my country Luxembourg (Europe):

My books selection (EDUcation):

I created ALSO in 2004, that was a global innovation and STILL is, a theater piece about ===> LEARNing the basics of Cyber Security through a Theater piece <===, le “Théâtre Interactiv et Pédagogique” (T.I.P.), check below:

.


[MK]: Mindy KIM

userfredericmoser01[MK]: More about me: I worked in a variety of settings. I completed my undergraduate degree with an internship at Martin Technology Academy. where I was an Odyssey of The Mind coach as well.   My first year of teaching was as Lead Preschool Teacher at Christian County Head Start, before I transferred into the public school system in Clarksville-Montgomery County. Where I taught Special Education K-1 and this year I will be a General Education Kindergarten Teacher. I try to develop my professional learning by doing and experiencing different settings within education. I went to a week-long conference at Vanderbilt where I was 1-24 chosen, making up individuals from 10 different states. I continue to volunteer my time with Clarksville Association for Down Syndrome by helping to raise money, raise awareness,  and help bring more of the surrounding community to events hosted by the organization.  I am the Morale Committee Chair at my school. The committee and I plan events to help boost morale, plan collaborative events, and to spread well-being throughout the school year. Future goals are to study leadership and education policy to better understand the demands on constraints placed on all individuals working in education and how to make the field better for all.

[DK] Dan Kirsch

Greetings from Patrick Henry Middle School! My name is Dan Kirsch. I teach courses in Information/Communications & Technology (ICT) and Career/Technical Education (CTE) for students in grades 6-8. I completed my undergraduate degree in Education from Dakota State University in Madison, SD (USA). My first 3 years of teaching was in a rural public school in Chamberlain, SD (USA). My duties included teaching K-6 Physical Education & 5-8 Middle School Technology classes. The opportunity to attend graduate school to obtain my Master’s Degree led me to South Dakota State University in Brookings, SD (USA) where I obtained my MS in Athletic Administration. During graduate school I obtained a part-time teaching position within the Sioux Falls School District in Sioux Falls, SD (USA). After graduate school I was given a full-time teaching position at Patrick Henry Middle School in the Sioux Falls School District, which is where I currently reside and love every minute of it!!! In the last couple of years, I have gained a ton of knowledge through twitter chats and global collaborations, which as led me to this opportunity to be part of this collaboration blog! I look forward to collaborating and communicating as much information as possible to help PLN and myself as a teacher to continue on the path of Life-Long Learning!


TEAM’s Experience During This Collaboration And Personal Coaching

[MK]:thumbs up WHAT I learned:

      • Development of a common language, that enabled OPEN sharing of ideas, experiences, knowledge.
      • Broadened understanding of concepts students need in the 21 Century to be successful.
      • Deepened understanding and professional growth, using what I learned and applying it to interactions with students, parents, and colleagues.
      • Building mindfulness of the constant changes in education and adapting to meet the needs of students.
      • Critical thinking means: Critical self-reflection, self-analysis <== BEFORE taking action

.

.

.

[GM] sharing-iconApart from the already published experiences from me here, there is one essential point to highlight as well:

      • THE LEARNing rhythm and the ENERGY of the participants! One size doesn’t fit it ALL! Some have more ENERGY as OTHERS and as a TEAM WE need to adapt ALSO to this as a TEAM! It is IMPORTANT to let know the TEAM when someone is feeling out of ENERGY, which is human and NORMAL! WE ALL have different ways of how OUR life is organized and this shouldn’t get changes, so let the leading person know this and when that person is clever and professional enough, a break of one day will be offered to the WHOLE TEAM. We are humans and NOT robots 😉 BTW: I am HAPPY sometimes to get a day off as well 😉
      • I know that this isn’t easy to admit, BUT WE MUST do it as:
        • as otherwise WE could face a BURNOUT and that isn’t good for OUR HEALTH, nor for the LEARners as they would suffer from it as well. I call this ===> Taking care of OUR own PROFESSIONAL HYGIENE  <=== Find below, please some helpful articles:
        • BURNOUT and Collaboration fatigue

.

.

[DK]: Dan, YOUR text in here, please, thanks.

.

.

.

Collaboration With Parents And Coaching

community-jpegIn modern schools there are ALSO parent meetings where the parents get involved, they get noticed about how THEIR kids progress and WHAT about THEY can help for BEST learning of THEM. This is a modern concept of collaboration between the school inside and the outside of the school. It should be a partnership. Here below some articles who explain in detail:

.

.


WHAT YOU Should Know Up From The Beginning When Coaching And On Global Collaboration

programmerman-animated

          • There is a MUST to establish some rules and guidelines UP from the beginning as WE did in this blog post, or as Mindy [MK] said: Establish a common language. [GM] This common language should be “Respect, Tolerance, Adapting, Empathy, Social behavior…” to avoid mistakes.YOU  are dealing with different mentalities and cultures, so avoid BIG mistakes and not necessary stress for ALL.
          • When coaching:
            • [MK] Immediate and constant feedback are essential. When possible set up times when feedback is given and time can be devoted to multiple exchanges to express ideas, questions, and overall thoughts. This helps maintain the integrity and focus, especially when working in different time zones, states, and from various experience backgrounds.

.

.


Positive Side Effects / LEARNers Want To LEARN New Languages

book-question-markWell, I was surprised when coaching and working together with some educators as suddenly I got told that THEY wanted to learn new languages. This after THEY saw my Twitter posts (Tweets) where I had some conversations with other multilingual educators, where WE discussed on the same Twitter thread in Luxembourgish, German, French and English; switching the languages in one second time. This is a valuable occasion, especially as with the internet one finds FREE professional courses, which WE will present here below:

Below more from ===> http://themindunleashed.org/2014/07/12-dozen-places-educate-online-free.html <===:

.

FOREIGN AND SIGN LANGUAGES

BBC Languages – Teach yourself a new spoken language online.
American Sign Language Browser – Teach yourself sign language online.
Livemocha – Start learning a new language online for free.
Learn10 – Gives you a language learning habit that’s hard to kick. 10 new words; everywhere, every day.
One Minute Languages – Learn a new language via podcasts that are updated regularly.
Mango Languages – Over 100 lessons, shown to you in PowerPoint style with interstitial quizzes, to move you through any language without cracking a book.

.


Authors (TEAM’s) Requests

The authors (The TEAM), as being involved in a teaching profession, must consistently update THEIR knowledge for a growth of THEIR ===> Professional Development <===. So, here below what is requested by them and WHO from the TEAM could provide them that coaching about it.

[GM]: Mindy [MK] wanted to know about how to create a blog. WE were discussing about it and I created a new blog post about the how to, check below, please:

[GM]: Mindy [MK] would like to learn about HTML.

[GM] I will start soon a new blog about ===> HTML for beginners <=== A very simple step by step for the practice on how to use in the blogs, ONLY the necessary, NO complete course… So, through this blog I will coach [MK] on the same way as WE did already in this blog post.

SO, you are a retired EDUcator, TEACHer, Instructor, LEHRENDER: WHAT to do NOW?!!

programmerman-animatedWell, that was the question I was asking myself when I became retired in 2014. As I did innovation in Modern-EDUcation in my country Luxembourg, there was NO WAY to give that up, BTW! SO, years before my retirement I was already present on Social-Media Twitter (2009), Facebook, and I did Curation (2011), as I was blogging (2010-2011) ALSO, actually very successful with > 197K (197.132) views (November 2019).

Giving up something which was already well known worldwide, was NO OPTION! Well, please check below HOW YOU can stay informed and trying to help others as well; remember: you are NOT anymore in the “School-Cocoon” and MORE FREE to say WHAT YOU want!! YOU DON’T have to go to “stupid” meetings anymore which are time-killing and mostly useless!!!

Check ALSO please:

A BIG difference, use it, please to make a CHANGE!! Others will listen and maybe follow your advice for a BETTER EDUcation, a Modern-EDUcation! Advice: Please check below to follow and to stay Up-To-Date!

AND, why not starting with tinkering and coding, being part of the Maker-Community and trying it out to be able to share it with your community in the MakerED, Maker-Spaces? You have time NOW, use it, please for the benefit of the LEARNERS! Check below please:

.


NEW Words, Trends to Know and to LEARN about in 21st Century

programmerman2Are YOU feeling overwhelmed with strange words, NEW trends, when you are reading and following posts, tweets, articles about/and in Social Media!? Well, I can understand YOU!!! There are SO MUCH, if I wouldn’t do curation, I wouldn’t understand it anymore as well, to be honest! 😉 Through my daily curation I see it and I read those articles, from WHERE I learn a lot as an autodidact. WHEN there are some words which I DON’T understand I am going MOSTLY to Wikipedia to find its explication and if NOT sufficient, I use GOOGLE and other online resources to know MORE about it!

For ME it’s THE BEST way (Curation) to learn and to stay up-to-date with my Professional Development! I tried out a lot of different ways after being online since 1998 and believe me, please, it’s the fastes way to keep it UP! 😉 Through Curation I build up my <===> PKM <===> Personal [Professional] Knowledge Management from where I can use it in ANY of my blogs, twitter posts and other Social Media to share it to people willing to learn.

Let us FIRST have a look about WHAT Curation and PKM is (first stuff to read and bring into PracTICE) before WE continue with THE strange words and trends later:

SO, let’s have a look on some (actually a lot…) NEW words and trends in EDUcation and WHO will influence EDUcation below, as THEY are actually running in Real-World, let us START first with the words:

Check also, please:

 

P.S.: The present words with NOT YET a link will get updated later, otherwise I wouldn’t finish this blog post! 😉

Dynamic Learning

Does your classroom offer one-and-done types of learning activities, or does the learning grow, inspire, and evolve throughout the year and beyond? With digital tools like G Suite for Education that are available 24/7, the learning doesn’t have to stop when the bell rings at the end of class, or when the worksheet is turned in, or even when the school year ends. The learning takes on a life of its own; it becomes dynamicThis concept alone should change the way you think about learning in general and change the way you facilitate learning in the classroom.

Through Curation, Social Media twitter and by building a PLN this is perfectly possible!

BTW : Did YOU actually realize that NOW it’s the PracTICE WHICH is dominating the Real-World before it EVEN is taught by EDUcation, a BIG CHANGE, isn’t it!!! Because of Entrepreneurship (bold actions…) the internet helped to CHANGE the world and flipped EDUcation to bring it MORE close to the needs of the workforce/Industry!!!

The NEW Pedagogy is MORE about the learners, students and to put THEM into the drivers seat; looking to find a Win-Win situation about THE How-To to GET THEM learning together in a team (EVEN outside the School-Cocoon with Social Media…) and to prepare THEM for the workforce/labor/industry by being able for <===> Learning-To-Learn <===> for a Life-Long Learning once out of school!

The authors are from Luxembourg/Europe (me), one female teacher from the USA and a male teacher from the USA WHO are using my blog post to learn together and sharing THEIR practice with YOU dear readers.

Well, there is a lot of different views about ===> Digital CitiZENship <=== WE will explore WHAT could be THE BEST way to teach and to learn about Digital CitiZENship (hashtag on Twitter is #digcit).

Here below the links of OUR blog post:

How does it come that I post Global-Collaboration blog posts? Well, once the #ProfessionalDevelopment is Upto-Date, one does understand THAT learning in a team brings out a win-win situation and that a generation exchange is benefit for all of the participants as anyone learns from each other.

NEW Words, Trends to Know and to LEARN about in 21st Century

NEW Words, Trends to Know and to LEARN about in 21st Century

NEW Words, Trends to Know and to LEARN about in 21st Century

programmerman-animatedAre YOU feeling overwhelmed with strange words, NEW trends, when you are reading and following posts, tweets, articles about/and in Social Media!? Well, I can understand YOU!!! There are SO MUCH, if I wouldn’t do curation, I wouldn’t understand it anymore as well, to be honest! 😉 Through my daily curation I see it and I read those articles, from WHERE I learn a lot as an autodidact. WHEN there are some words which I DON’T understand I am going MOSTLY to Wikipedia to find its explication and if NOT sufficient, I use GOOGLE and other online resources to know MORE about it!

For ME it’s THE BEST way (Curation) to learn and to stay up-to-date with my Professional Development! I tried out a lot of different ways after being online since 1998 and believe me, please, it’s the fastes way to keep it UP! 😉 Through Curation I build up my <===> PKM <===> Personal [Professional] Knowledge Management from where I can use it in ANY of my blogs, twitter posts and other Social Media to share it to people willing to learn.

Let us FIRST have a look about WHAT Curation and PKM is (first stuff to read and bring into PracTICE) before WE continue with THE strange words and trends later:

 

SO, let’s have a look on some (actually a lot…) NEW words and trends in EDUcation and WHO will influence EDUcation below, as THEY are actually running in Real-World, let us START first with the words:

Check also, please:

 

P.S.: The present words with NOT YET a link will get updated later, otherwise I wouldn’t finish this blog post! 😉

Dynamic Learning

Does your classroom offer one-and-done types of learning activities, or does the learning grow, inspire, and evolve throughout the year and beyond? With digital tools like G Suite for Education that are available 24/7, the learning doesn’t have to stop when the bell rings at the end of class, or when the worksheet is turned in, or even when the school year ends. The learning takes on a life of its own; it becomes dynamicThis concept alone should change the way you think about learning in general and change the way you facilitate learning in the classroom.

Through Curation, Social Media twitter and by building a PLN this is perfectly possible!

BTW : Did YOU actually realize that NOW it’s the PracTICE WHICH is dominating the Real-World before it EVEN is taught by EDUcation, a BIG CHANGE, isn’t it!!! Because of Entrepreneurship (bold actions…) the internet helped to CHANGE the world and flipped EDUcation to bring it MORE close to the needs of the workforce/Industry!!!

The NEW Pedagogy is MORE about the learners, students and to put THEM into the drivers seat; looking to find a Win-Win situation about THE How-To to GET THEM learning together in a team (EVEN outside the School-Cocoon with Social Media…) and to prepare THEM for the workforce/labor/industry by being able for <===> Learning-To-Learn <===> for a Life-Long Learning once out of school!

Luxembourg EDUcation Interviews: STEM, Robotics participation in First Global Competition in 2017

Luxembourg EDUcation Interviews:  STEM, Robotics participation in First Global Competition in 2017

.

FGC2017-TEAM LUXEMBOURG-2

 

.


THE Competition itself

2017 FIRST  GLOBAL CHALLENGE – GAME DESIGN

INTRODUCTION

Welcome to the official game of the 2017 FIRST Global Challenge, H2O FLOW! In H2O FLOW, teams learn
 about real-world water
 scarcity and 
contamination issues. In 
the game, two villages
 exist on either side of a 
contaminated river. The
 villagers compete to
 create and store purified 
water in their respective
 reserves. In a laboratory
 up stream, the villagers 
come together to research the contaminants and ultimately create a purification system so contaminants are removed before they reach the villages, thus providing clean water for all. In the end, each village prepares for the coming flood by searching for higher ground.

How does it work?

Match is 2:30 minutes long and six (6) teams are competing where one team (3 countries) is called “Aqua Team” and the other one (3 countries) is called “Hydro Team“.

.

Best is to watch the video below, who explains in detail:

Winners of the FIRST Global Grand Challenge Award Teams

.

.

Team Luxembourg finished 61 out of 163 teams (157 nations)!

[Ronny OSWEILER] After plenty hours of hard work, Team Luxembourg has been awarded the “Certificate of Excellence” that recognizes professional achievement, advanced education, commitment to STEM, time management and superior performance during the competition.

Congratulations to all students!

Team Luxembourg could have been 48th, if in game 5, we would have done the climbing, but due to technical reasons the robot was stuck. Those 20 points would have been important.

[Gust MEES] We will discuss this in the section “Incident in round five for Team Luxembourg“, below!

Incident in round five for Team Luxembourg

[Ronny OSWEILER] In round five, the robot of Team Canada touched our robot and disconnected our battery cable. We were unable to move for the rest of the match and lost a lot of potential points in that way. As one can see in the video, we had collected a lot of blue balls which could have been scored. Also it was impossible to climb the bar at the end of the match.
.

[Gust MEES] How did Team Canada react after WHAT happend!??

[Ronny OSWEILER] They apologized for what happened. It was not their intention, as they were allied to us during that match.

 

Video from LAM-Code Club where one can see exactly WHAT happend, check below please (at approximately 1 min 11):

The preparation before the tournament

 

programmerman-animated[Gust MEES] 1) How did it start; did YOU get an invitation to participate?

[Ronny OSWEILER] The teachers at the LAM got offered the project of forming a team to represent Luxembourg by SCRIPT. We only got to know about the project very late, so time was of the essence. We had to gather a group of students within two days.
As Annabel is currently studying science of education and is also interested in technology, I asked her to join me in mentoring the team.

 

[Gust MEES] 2) WHEN did YOU start the preparations?

[Annabel SCHOELLEN] The preparations started at the end of march, when we had to gather all necessary information about the students, as well as ensure everyone has got a passport to travel to the United States. Then we had to wait for the robot, which arrived after the Easter holidays. From that moment onward, we started brainstorming on the robot to build, and prototype our ideas.

 

[Gust MEES] 3) WHO were the responsible persons for the “Team Luxembourg”?

[Ronny OSWEILER] The main people that mentored the students while building the robot were Ronny Osweiler (teacher at LAM) , Micael Leal (teacher at LAM) and Annabel Schoellen (student in Science of Education). But the project could only be realized with the organizational help of Christian Boudot and Fabrice Roth, both teachers at LAM, as well as the direction of the LAM.

 

[Gust MEES] 4) From WHICH schools did the students come from?

[Ronny OSWEILER] As the time for the prepartions was very limited, it was not possible to organize a national qualification contest. We took some of our most talented students, as well as some students from other schools. The students were: Laura Märker (LAM), Yannick Martins Dos Santos (LAM), Pit Baum (LAM), Kimon Leners (LAM), Lina Chen (LAM), Atreyam Sharma (École Européenne), Shawn Teusch (LGL). Pit Baum was the captain of the team.

 

[Gust MEES] 5) Did the students travel and participate for FREE, OR did THEY have to pay a participation!?

 

[Annabel SCHOELLEN] The students had to pay no money for the participation at the project, otherwise I think that this could have been a barrier for potentially brilliant minds. Education and the development of technological and social skills should always be accessible for everyone. This was only possible because of our generous sponsors.

.

[Gust MEES] 6) What was the motto of the team?


.

.

[Ronny OSWEILER] For us, the team was a representation of the diversity of Luxembourg. We had 7 students with 5 different nationalities (Luxembourgish, French, German, Portuguese and Indian) . This was the reason that we took the slogan “A team as diverse as its country“. We wanted to show the other nations in Washington the acceptance and diversity that Luxembourg has to offer.

[Gust MEES] To understand the above, one must know that in Luxembourg the part of the population without Luxembourg nationality is close to 48%.

[Gust MEES] Update (25-07-2017): MarcTEUSCH and Madhumalti were supporting during their Washington stay! Marc was present because his son is in “TeamLuxembourg” and I made already an interview with him here:

.


Visit in the Luxembourg Embassy

At The Embassy.

The team got contacted by the Luxembourgish Embassy in Washington, and even got a visit from the Consul Stan Myck at their booth in the DAR Constitution Hall and by Franz Schilling during the opening ceremony. The team was also invited to visit the Embassy and was welcomed by the H.E. Ambassador Sylvie Lucas, who showed them the whole embassy and gave them historical background information about the presence of Luxembourg in Washington..

 


Strange things were happening, “Team BURUNDI” disappeared!

800px-Missing_map.svgAfter taking part in an international robotics competition in Washington DC, six Burundi teenagers have been reported missing. Two of the students were seen leaving the US for Canada.

A police spokesperson said authorities “do not have any indication of foul play” as the investigation continues into what happened after the group attended the FIRST Global Challenge robotics competition with students from 157 nations.

Four of the teenagers seem to be in a safe place, but police are not reporting any details as yet, according to the Washington Post.

thumbs upMOTIVATION: Knowing NOW how important it is to take part of such a great Event, I encourage YOU ALL to take part of it by any possible action, even as a private person! I encourage especially private persons to display the banner from SID2017 on their blogs and/or websites :)

Where can I get the banners?

 

People who are on Twitter may use the hashtag #SID2017 to promote that Event, thanks for Helping to make the Internet a more secure place!
